The home land of many architectural sights
World-famous architect Alvar Aalto has left his imprint on South Ostrobothnia with many remarkable creations that are definitely worth visiting. We can book you a guided walking tour e.g. in Alvar Aalto Centre in Seinäjoki and in Alajärvi.
The region is renowned for its vast fields as well as numerous rivers. The horizon beyond the plains of Ostrobothnia seems to stretch further than anywhere else in Finland. Shimmering rivers wind through the lush countryside dotted with red ochre farms, making it a view worth watching. In late summer the fields turn golden and then silver from the sparkling frost. This is authentic Ostrobothnia that brings observers a sense of ease.
The largest lake in the region Lappajärvi, created by a meteorite 77 million years ago, is a favourite location for both locals and tourists. Besides, Seinäjoki has one of the few artificial lakes in Finland, a clear proof of the Ostrobothnians' entrepreneurship. Numerous lookout towers, The Devil's Nest eroded cavity, river cruises, hiking paths and hundreds of other nature-oriented sights stand out as our flagship product.
Untouched nature, the peace and tranquility of the countryside, charming old houses, the heartbeat of town, are all waiting for you. Here you can find all the comfort of modern civilization in the middle of genuine natural surroundings.
Relaxation holiday, sports activities or cultural entertainment, the choice is all yours!
